Form & Verdict

Three runs as a 2yo, recording his best RPR in his one run over this trip (Tapeta); gelded prior to his reappearance/handicap debut and this well-related 3yo faces his most realistic assignment to date; top yard's few AW runners this year have gone well.

Contrasting performances at Southwell (1m) this year, winning on reappearance (handicap debut) but disappointing last time; in excellent hands and could bounce back if taking well to first-time headgear.

T: William Haggas

Hinted at ability in his three 2yo runs and duly took a step forward on his handicap debut/reappearance/first run after being gelded when gamely landing a C&D event 16 days ago; still looked to be learning on the job there and a 3lb rise may underestimate him.

Form & Verdict

He has improved with each of his three starts, displaying a willing attitude to win a 1m maiden at Kempton last month; he will need to improve again to defy this opening mark but his pedigree suggests that is highly likely (half-brother to seven winners, including at Group 1 level).

Displayed a willing attitude to win a 1m maiden at Kempton in January and advanced his RPR again when narrowly denied on his Southwell handicap debut (1m again) in February; the Southwell form hasn't really worked out but his very useful pedigree marks him down as one who could have more to offer now switching to turf after a break.

Cost 250,000euros at the Breeze Ups last spring; promise at two and he wasn't disgraced over 7f at Kempton on his reappearance/handicap debut four weeks ago, running on having been tapped for speed in the straight; 1m could spark improvement from him.

With blinkers added he finished runner-up from similar marks at Doncaster (1m, good) and Nottingham (1m, heavy) in the summer, but twice well held since (back in cheekpieces last time); now 0-13 and others are preferred.

Disappointed on latest outing six weeks ago and now 0-12 but lost out only by a neck off today's mark at Nottingham (8.3f, heavy; also suited by good) two starts ago and has obvious claims if back at that level here; blinkered for last three runs; cheekpieces refitted today.

0-11 and needs to prove he can get the job done but he's returned to form in these blinkers the last twice, finishing second at Doncaster (1m, good) and Nottingham (1m, heavy); can give another good account.

Form & Verdict

Three runs in 7f fillies' novice events in the latter part of 2022, winning at Chelmsford on the second occasion; didn't run badly under a penalty at Kempton 11 weeks ago; the combination of an extra furlong and new headgear could squeeze out more from her.

Won a Chelmsford novice (7f, Polytrack) for Richard Spencer a year ago and looked to be on the way back on her second start for this yard when third of eight at Chepstow (7f, good) last month, but her two efforts since have been moderate; others appeal more.

The handicapper has held the upper hand since she won a 6f maiden at Hamilton last summer; slowly edging down the weights but hopes here would appear to rest on the new trip having a significant effect.

Beaten favourite in sprint races on his first three starts; showed his true colours when readily accounting for 11 rivals upped to 7f at Chelmsford six weeks ago; that wasn't a strong maiden by any stretch but he's clearly well regarded and he makes his handicap debut over a trip that could prompt further progress; interesting.
